Open House New York invites you to a very special event to kick off The Final Mile: Food Systems of New York, a new yearlong series of tours and talks exploring the architecture of New York City’s multi-layered food system.

Join Karen Karp, president of Karp Resources, and Robert LaValva, founder of the New Amsterdam Market, for a conversation about the future of New York City’s food system. Learn about how the movement of food has impacted the shape, look, and flow of the physical city: its buildings, its infrastructure, and its public spaces. Discover how the evolution of the food system has mirrored–even facilitated–historical population shifts, and consider how the current trends might reshape the city again over the coming decades, as New York City looks to add another 1.5 million residents by 2030. Karp and LaValva will discuss the relationship between food and cities and lay out some of the key issues that OHNY will explore over the coming year through The Final Mile.

Karen Karp is a leading authority on food systems and New York City’s good food movement with over 25 years of experience in specialty food retail, agriculture, and restaurants. Robert LaValva is an architect and planner and the founder of the New Amsterdam Market.
